Foodstuffs develop and change in tune with the seasons, with regions, trends and creations... Nowadays, getting to know them is to be immersed in a voyage around the world discovering different cultures and ways of farming. We’ve entered the era of ‘world food’, when everyone can now enjoy flavours from home and abroad.
Never before has eating allowed us to travel so far and so wide. Everywhere there’s a thirst for something new and ‘food scouts’ scour the planet to uncover products which will become tomorrow’s nutritional must-eats.
At the same time, news coverage of food intolerances, food scandals and the standardisation of flavour brought about by the industrialisation of food production have resulted in new consumption patterns as people want to embrace well-being, look after their health and respect the need to protect our planet.
Local supermarkets have dished up for you new flavours, super foods, health, beauty and sustainable development! Passionate about giving you freshness, quality, service and choice, their challenge is to understand what you want and surprise you with food that is innovative, novel and extra special! Gourmet adventurers who love delicious, healthy alternatives.
Organic food for committed or occasional consumers, who are guided by their belief in the environment and greater naturalness.
Vegetarian-style products for proponents of vegetarianism, veganism and also for flexitarians who want to eat less meat. Quite simply anyone who loves trying out new flavours, can find some plant-based alternatives! Oat, rice, coconut and soy: these vegetable-based drinks are similar to milk, but first and foremost they are drinks. These drinks are used instead of milk, particularly with coffee, muesli and for cooking by those who want to eat vegan. Among these products, soy drinks, high in plant proteins, provide an alternative to cow’s milk. However, some of these plant-based milks are calcium-enriched as they do not contain calcium.
These milk substitutes are also really handy for anyone unable to digest lactose.
Gluten-free foods can be found in many sections as e.g. in the bakery section with brioches, cookies, speciality breads, croissants, rolls, cakes and so on. Gluten is found not solely in bread; wheat is used in many different food preparations because of its binding qualities so it occurs in these grocery foods: chips, sweet and savoury biscuits, cereals, muesli, cereal bars and snacks, spreads, chocolate, flours, couscous, rice, egg pasta and egg-free pasta, soups, spices, ready-to-use sauces, infant food and other products. As for the frozen food section there is a large offer: bread and pastries, ready meals, pizzas, lasagne, meat-based dishes, breaded fish and not to mention a whole range of scrumptious ice creams!
